July, 2014
 
 

Welcome to Kenilworth's official website.  Here you can find information about our local government, access to town services and departments.  News and updates on special activities are also listed on this website.

Kenilworth is a wonderful small town located in Union County.  It is about two square miles containing about eight thousand citizens who work together to make our community special and welcoming. We are fortunate with great parks, vibrant small businesses and restaurants with delightful food.

I am privileged to serve as Mayor.  I along with all the Borough Council and all the town employees are here to help you and try to improve the quality of life in Kenilworth, by providing the best public and customer service.  These efforts help to make our town a great place to live and work. I encourage our citizens to attend town meetings where you can share your ideas, suggestions, and concerns.

I grew up in Kenilworth and even though our town has grown and changed since my childhood it has retained its unique nature.  Now, with my wife and children, I once again discover its charms.  I hope your experiences will be similar.

The longest day of the year is behind us and the end of the school year is past. We are now in the summer season.I am sure everyone has summer plans. Here are some of the events the town has planned.
 
 
There will be two town meetings scheduled for the remainder of the summer. One will be on July 9 and the other will be August 27.  Both meetings will begin at 8:00 pm. Each town meeting has a work session the day before at 7:30 pm.
 
 
August 7 will be the annual Kenilworth Library fest which will run from 5:30 to 7:00. There will be a magician, juggler, and a balloon artist. The Bard on the Boulevard program at the Kenilworth Library will continue on Monday July 28 with Cymbeline and Pericles on Thursday August 14.
Both programs start at 7:30 pm.
 
The Kenilworth Fire Department and Rescue Squad will hold their annual Carnival in the
Saint Theresa school parking lot.  It will run from August 18 through August 23 weather permitting.
 
I remember during my school years that the arrival of the carnival was bittersweet. I loved going there with my family but I knew that the start of the school year was very soon. Yet I would have a summer full of memories to get me through the school year. 
 
 
I hope everyone has a wonderful summer. May many fond memories be created.
.
Mayor Scott Klinder
